About Us

SHANNON CHURCH, founder and owner

I’m a globe trotting, music loving, wife, mom, orphan advocate and follower of Christ. I’m a big fan of laughter, good friends, great conversation, campfire and of course – all things birth. I’m deeply in love with my husband, an amazing man with whom I share five gorgeous children. My journey into birth work began over a decade ago. Since then, I've been incredibly blessed to have supported hundreds of families in all types of experiences. My extensive background in birth work has taught me that every birth is so unique and there is no one right way to welcome a baby earthside. I’ve supported natural births, medicated births, inductions, VBAC’s, home births as well as families during cesarean birth. It truly is a passion of mine to see every woman find her voice for her own birth experience (whatever that may be) and to see that family encouraged throughout the entire process. I feel so privileged to be invited into such a special, intimate time in one’s life. To support, guide and encourage families as they prepare to meet this new little life is such an honor. My hope is that my clients will look back at their birth experiences with a heart full of love, empowerment and joy.

MALLORY CHASE, cvd (tvl)

I was born and raised in Rapid City, SD. I am blessed to be able to enjoy and share all of the beauty and activities the Black Hills offer with my amazing husband and two wonderful children. My mission is to help people to live their best and healthiest life and I can often be found researching, studying and learning about health and healing methods. I have been fascinated with the beautiful process of birth for most of my life. After the birth of our first child in 2016 I realized that my passion was to offer help, knowledge and support to other mothers and families as they traveled through this exciting, but sometimes uncertain experience.  I began my career as a certified birth doula in 2018 and it has been my true pleasure to assist expectant families throughout their birth journey. I have had the opportunity to experience and support many variations of birth including my own, one unmedicated and one cesarean section birth. I love meeting woman and families where they are at in their journey and providing educational, physical, and emotional support. I believe this time in one's life to be incredibly sacred and transformational. I am honored to be able to aid women in feeling empowered in pregnancy, birth and beyond and to provide quality care to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of the whole family.

I am a wife, mother, friend, daughter, and above all, a follower of Jesus Christ. I was raised in Rapid City, SD and after high school I met and fell in love with my wonderful husband Mark. We got married and moved to Bartlesville, OK where he pursued Pastoral Ministry and I completed by Birth Doula training through DONA. I have since been blessed with three beautiful children Eden, Peter, and Kara. If I’m not attending birth related things, you can find me at church, sewing, gardening, or being with my family; most likely with a coffee in my hand. God has granted me with an overwhelming passion to serve women, particularly throughout their labor and motherhood processes. I love being a part of the intimate time in a family’s life of welcoming a little life into this world. There are so many birth options and choices and however a woman decides to welcome her little one, it is my passion to assist her in feeling empowered, loved, safe, and cared for. Above all, it is my desire for the family to have a birth experience that is a beautiful memory that they will cherish for a lifetime.
